We need a simple straightforward word to designate the activities of people when they are not motivated by thoughts of exchange, a word that denotes autonomous, non-market-related actions through which people satisfy everyday needs — the actions which by their own nature escape bureaucratic control…  that we want to defend from measurement or manipulation. The term must be broad enough to fit the preparation of food and the shaping of language, childbirth and recreation, without implying either a privatised activity […] a hobby or an irrational and primitive procedure.
Such an adjective is not at hand.
But ‘vernacular’ might serve.

Ivan Illich, Shadow Work (1981)
